Hi Everyone,
If your like me, which might not be a good thing, and don't like your engine screaming before it engages the clutch bell read on!
I've just replaced the clutch lining (0400-004) on my Freya and in order to get the tolerence down to where I have engagement at a fast idle and not engine screaming at 1/4 throttle. I simply used a piece of my printer's paper and inserted one layer prior to the liner.
All I did then was to start the engine and increase the throttle a few times while holding the rotor head and now I have a nice fast idle engagement. The Hirobo clearance is too open and requires too much throttle for engagement.

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Humm......
My X-Spec engages around 1/16 -1/8 throttle.......
And my Evo 50 is the same, I replaced the clutch lining on the X-Spec when it was about 8 months old....and even then with the old lining it would engage right at or a little past 1/8 throttle.

big cheese,
1/4 throttle probably is an exaggeration on my part but the original clearance was allowing too fast an idle to engage.
I E-mailed Jeff MRC, and he said the replacement liner would not require any reworking, however, I trial fitted the clutch into the bell before adhering the new liner and it was just the same clearance as the original liner. I ran into this same situation with an older Eagle a few years ago and had a company at the time called Tech Specialties refit and rework a new liner for me. This clutch is still alive and working perfectly and can only be attributed to the fact that the engagement throttle setting is low enough that there is minimal scuffing etc when engagement occurs.

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

I understand....I've just never run into that problem before, and don't remember reading anything about it.......like Jeff told you...the liner should not need to be reworked. I've replace a few liners..and never had High RPM engagement.

glad you got it resolved.
